They're basically flawless.

YHF is certainly the closest to flawless I've heard from them. It's an amazing combination of pop/folk and sonic dissonance.

But I love A.M. and Being There too. They're just so fun and unassuming...there's something really wonderful about a song as simple and fun as Casino Queen, I Must Be High, or Monday. Some days, I just really love that stuff.

I hated Spiders until the second time I heard it live, which was last summer. It's a song that really showcases Nels's natural playing style, and it was cool to see him and Jeff feed off of each other's energy. A lot of people in the crowd suddenly had glow sticks, too (the crew might've been tossing them out into the crowd), and every time the song rose to one of those really high explosive parts, everyone threw their glowsticks. It was so damned pretty in the dark park, and by the end of the song, the glowsticks were around the whole crowd, even in the back where we were.

I requested Ashes of American Flags for Saturday over on that request form on Wilcoworld. I'd also love to hear Too Far Apart and Red-Eyed and Blue. Honestly, though, I'll be thrilled no matter what they play. They had so much fun breaking out the obscure songs this week that it wouldn't surprise me if at least a few of them stay in the setlists.

LM, do you think you're going to stick around after the show to see if they come out to sign autographs and such? And do you know if the Tower people will hassle me about my camera?

And I love Being There, my first.

I Got You (At The End Of The Century) is perfect pop.

My current Wilco album ranking goes something like this:

1. YHF (my second favorite album of all-time, barely behind Achtung Baby)
2. Being There
3. Sky Blue Sky
4. Kicking Television
5. A.M.
6. A Ghost Is Born
7. Summerteeth

It's not that I don't like AGIB and ST; I just think the others work better on the whole. I love the first Mermaid Avenue album, too, but it's hard to rank that with the rest. I still haven't gotten around to picking up the second Mermaid Avenue album yet.

If anyone is interested in improvisational jazz, I really encourage you to check out Nels's other group, the Nels Cline Singers. Their three albums are all mind-blowing. corianderstem can attest to how much I gush about Nels in my Livejournal, but I promise he deserves every word of it

Do they do signings after shows? I had no idea. I try to make a habit of sticking around anyway, so you can expect to see me hanging around. Besides, the main lobby is SO CROWDED after a gig that you won't be going anywhere fast. Probably best just to stay in the theatre for a few minutes at least.

When it comes to cameras, just don't bring anything large. I got caught last time I was there for taping during an Arcade Fire gig, but that camera was huge. Just bing a smallish digital camera and you'll be fine.

They don't always, but do more often than not. I figure it's at least worth a shot. They haven't played Philly in awhile, so I think there's a pretty good chance they'll come out. I'm planning to get down there between 4 and 5, so I might take a look around and see if maybe I can catch them before or after sound check, too.

The tickets don't say "no camera," so I'm going to stick mine in the bottom of my purse and turn the flash off when I use it, and hopefully I won't get caught. I'll be close enough that I should be able to get some awesome pictures.

I figured you were the punctual type. I won't show up till probably 7:15 or thereabouts, but early enough to spy things out, check out the t-shirts, and all that good stuff.

As far as I know, we're the only board members going, so we have to snap a ton of photos for everyone missing out.

This would be a good moment for inmpy to repost his photo with Tweedy.

Can't believe they're not coming near me on this tour.

Via Chicago.

It's not my favorite song of theirs, not by a longshot, but they really kicked the shit out of it last night. The guy I was with is crazy for Wilco like I am for U2, so he's seen them tons of time in concert and he said that was the best version he'd ever heard.

That's what was playing when I first tuned in last night and I posted earlier that it was "scorching."

Nels is one of the best things that ever happened to Wilco.

Can anyone point me to last nights setlist?

Summerteeth is your LEAST favorite? Wow.

Nels is BADASS live. He's so bad, that bad ass becomes one word. Its fusion.
